Battling the heartburn this morning at 9am…ugh! It has been getting worse in the past few weeks and I have been able to pinpoint which foods give me heartburn the worst:

  • Fried foods
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Potato Chips
  • Coffee

But this morning I had a plain bagel with plain cream cheese and I was stunned to feel the burning sensation in my chest and throat by 9am, are you kidding me!? Usually I do not feel it come on until the late evening hours or right before bed. But this is ridiculous. I am pounding water like you wouldn’t believe and in between my trips to the bathroom, I am drinking more and more cold water to try and fan the flames. I have been munching on tums as well, but to no avail. My next attempt will be a green apple.

The only GOOD thing about having heartburn this badly (yes, there is something good about it) is that in all the books I have read, they say the one old wives’ tale that is actually true is that if you have heartburn during pregnancy, then your baby will be born with a full head of hair. Nice!

But you heard it here first, if my kid comes out bald, I’m DEFINITELY calling out that old wives’ tale!
